Introducing 'Koncertina' - designed by Mark McKellier.
Available in 10 line (42.3mm), and 16 line (67.7mm) versions cut from end grain English hardwood using a combination of modern CNC technology and traditional hand woodworking tools (including an original printers saw), made to English type-high (0.918in or 23.3mm) within plus or minus 0.1mm tolerance, sealed with shellac and hand finished with a traditional polished printing surface.
The 16 line size is available as a 4A scheme (2A of solid, 2A of outline - you need both to achieve the concertina effect) - 72 blocks. Please see scheme details on the left. 10 blank blocks are included (5 solid, 5 outline) so the flow of the concertina isn't broken.
The 10 line size is available as a 2 colour4A scheme (2A of solid 'down', 2A of solid 'up' - you need both to achieve the concertina effect) - 72 blocks. Please see scheme details on the left. 10 blank blocks are included (5 solid 'up', 5 solid 'down') so the flow of the concertina isn't broken. I'm happy to make spacing for you if required to make working in two colours easier - let me know when placing an order.
Other sizes and schemes available on request. I can also cut individual letters if you have a particular project in mind - please email what letters you would like.
Materials: End grain English hardwood, clear shellac.
Dimensions: Each block is the same size - 42mm x 67.7mm for the 16 line.
